Overview

Lean Six Sigma Process

The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt certification is suitable for anyone looking to generate business improvements in areas such as: customer satisfaction, service delivery, cost control, process performance, & new product introduction. Lean Six Sigma is a process improvement methodology. Project and change management are ineffective without process management.

You will be introduced to both Lean and Six Sigma methodologies, meaning that activities focused around the speed and quality of business processes are addressed.

Lean Six Sigma is a process improvement methodology. Project and change management are ineffective without process management. You will use the approach to maximise customer value whilst minimising waste. In simple terms this is creating more value for customers with fewer resources.

Your accelerated course meets the ISO 18404 standard applicable to all PEEC programs. Delivered in line with the International Standards for Lean Six Sigma, as described in the ISO 13053-1 and ISO 13053-2 standard, you will attain internationally recognised certifications in Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt.

Traditional Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training lasts 20 days. This normally includes a month between each module, meaning that it can take up to four months to complete. This is compared to ten days (Green + Black Belt) at Firebrand. Plus, our course contains case studies and exercises - it is not just theory.

On completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand Six Sigma and Lean and have hands-on application of the Green Belt tool-kit applied to real-life problems.
  • Establish meaningful business metrics that align process performance with financial performance.
  • Have a detailed view of Cycle Time Reduction, Process Variation and Risk Management.
  • Prepare an actionable plan for identifying, scoping and chartering process improvement projects and selecting the right people to execute those projects.
  • Lead teams in managing and preventing defects in products, processes or services.
  • Redesigning exisiting products, processes or services to achieve Six Sigma levels of performance over the life cycle.
  • Understand how an enhanced value stream can illuminate areas of opportunity through the application of Lean principles to reduce cycle time.
  • Apply a practical understanding of how to lead strategic change, manage a team and transfer Lean Six Sigma knowledge to develop robust breakthrough products, services and processes that perform flawlessly on launch.
  • Prepare an actionable plan for supporting your organisation, and tools to build continuous improvement capability that deliver substantial and meaningful business results.

This Lean Six Sigma Green and Black Belt course is designed for all business professionals from a wide variety of manufacturing or service / transactional environments. Ideally, you will be tasked with delivering major performance or efficiency transformation for a business, typically working as a Change Leader within the business.
